Going East

Going East


I was trying to imitate that flat Japanese style that has so many crazy patterns in one picture it makes you kind of dizzy.

Anyway, this was inspired by the way white and especially black people are often portrayed in Japanese cartoons. Black people are either extremely stereotypical and/or ugly, while white people can be either very beautiful or ugly depending on how we are supposed to feel about them. Rather sad when you think about it.

While drawing this I started wondering how one white and two black people would have ended up in the old Japan, and what on earth were they doing there? Obviously they would still be “bad guys”, so their foe would be some young Japanese man/woman who had to get rid of these funny looking intruders. Lots of flashy and physically impossible battles follow. :XD:

Actually, there is a way it could work: how familiar are you with the Japanese "Hissatsu Shigotonin" (必殺仕事人) live-action series?

Oh man, this is going to have me stewing for days...

@neoshadow: *aka me* I'm going to go with Kimono.

And i just realized they are all standing the EXACT same. as in copy-pasta. Sneaky, Humon. Sneaky indeed.

You know what freaks me out about this picture? Its not their faces. Its the fact that as i scroll down, the patterns don't look like they move. Specifically Natalie's Kimono. (Or Yutaka, as onewithrussia666 says. I have no idea.)

You draw so beautifully. I am jealous, I draw worse than a three years old... Those kimonos are wonderful.
